The Ultimate Revenge The 21st Century Gentlemans Club #3 E–pub ´ Victoria Parker
I was eluctant to ead this because1It s part of a series called the 21st Century Gentleman s Club which sounds like a un down strip club2The opening takes place in an opulent Rococo building of said Gentleman s Club with a conversation with a billionaire from another story in the series The hero is a bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks who has made good He has been waging a war on the owner of the Gentleman s club and now he wants to meet the object of his evenge face to face 3The hero breaks into the heroine s private uarters and is violently apprehended by her guardsI m not a fan of court intrigue criminal heroes or violence And yet I kept eading and I m so glad I did Another eviewer said that this author always brings her characters to such darkness that you wonder if they will ever find light I can tell you that she does but it is a journey with many twists and turns and you have pay attention In this eview I m not going to spoil any of the plot points The author is very careful about what she eveals and when she eveals it There are evelations up to the very last pageInstead I ll try to explain what this about so you can decide if this story is for you And then I ll just gush about the writing and the characterization for a bitTrope hero wants evenge on the heroine s father a eclusive Greek Mafia type guy who is such a megalomaniac that he calls himself Zeus The hero has a very good eason for wanting evenge you don t ealize the full extent of the damage ol Zeus did until the very endHero has a two part planPart one he ll uin Zeus s club and his businesses and then throw it into his face He s on his way to completing part one with the exception of the face to face meetingPart two he ll marry the mousy daughter of the majority shareholder of the family jewelry company that his father lost to Zeus years ago Then he ll give the company back to his elderly grandfather After the hero is captured the heroine decides he must be the one messing with her business She is now Zeus since her father died four years before The eader knows this in chapter one so I m not giving anything away She accepts the hero s bet because she wants to understand what s going on The bet She will spend two weeks with the hero and if he can get her into his bed she must introduce him to Zeus The heroine is wildly attracted to him but she is emotionally frozen and doesn t think she ll fall for his charm The hero thinks she is a trust fund poopsie who is playing at being in charge at Daddy s business She will enjoy two weeks of sex and then will forget all about him after she introduces him to her father He tells himself she won t be affected by his evenge scenario And how wrong they both areThe hero has hidden depths he s not just a product of the mean streets He had a life before Zeus happened and his memories are heart tugging There is a euisite makeover scene of the heroine shopping with the hero but there s a twist with the waiting hero and a young boy and a soccer ball That little throwaway scene looks backwards and forwards into the hero s life but you don t ealize it until the end of the storyThe heroine is pure of heart She is not a physical virgin but she is pure in her motives even while she is keeping secrets from the hero and the public Her hidden strengths are evident from the beginning and the hero uickly eadjusts him opinion of her Her strengths are not of the feisty variety she is honest with herself and faces facts no matter how hard to handleWhen the eventual betrayal of the hero comes to light breaking her heart and his she takes it on the chin and then pulls herself together and ights the wrongs of the past without expecting a happy ending for herself She is no doormat but pure of heart and generous of heart Yes Okay the writingThis is a story that you have to be in the mood for It s complicated You have to pay attention It is thoughtfully crafted The tropes and conventions of the HP universe are all there shopping trip I mentioned before but they are used in new waysThe settings directly eflect on the plot and. I will annihilate your world As you destroyed mine For over a decade Nicandro Santos heir to a legendary diamond legacy has lived with one unrelenting purpose to infiltrate the ultrapres.
The characterizationThe Hh meet in Zanzibar in the Rococo Gentleman s club Here it s literal masks and complications and artificiality Then the heroine takes the hero to an ice hotel in Northern Europe This is her personality cold pure air nature at its most elemental It is a place of life and death fire and ice the mysterious Northern Lights etc The story then shifts to Barcelona the hero s choice full of light warmth color dancing food ease and soccer The betrayal is in Paris The Eiffel tower outside their window is the spike through both their heartsThe esolution takes place in a boardroom with the heroine in charge and still in power The hero has not uined her She is the proverbial PhoenixThe epilogue takes place a year later and is the most disappointing part of this story We e subjected to the other couples from the series and I didn t care about them after the fever dream that was the Hh s story I wish it had been a stand alone so they could have had their own epilogueI hope I ve piued your interest This is a story that made me pay attention and intrigued me from start to finish The Hh are wonderful characters and belong together I m sure I ll enjoy it even when I ead it again It wasn t bad it just wasn t my cuppa I did find it ironic that the H was all set to marry this girl and is this hot shot business guy and then did not find out the particulars of who owned the majority shares of the company That is a newbie mistake so it kinda uined the H s Business Guru persona But hey it is HPlandia and that is how they oll Plenty of angst a little too much Ds in the bedroom for me but I could see why they went there The writing is eally good but mostly I was like uit being all angsty and just get on with things already I don t think I truly have an angsty angst soul probably because I hang around with a bunch of cats and they are the ultimate pragmatists For over a decade Nicardro Santos heir to the legendary diamond legacy has lived with one unrelenting purpose to infiltrate the ultra prestigious Virtus gentlemen s club and bring it and it s leader Zues downBut what he doesn t know is that Olympia Merisi the daughter of his enemy is now the one in charge Olympia has her own easons for wanting to keep Nicandro close and she will stop at nothing to protect what belongs to her The only uestion that emains at the end of the day is what will happen when the battle lines of hate and anger start to blur and dangerous and sensual ones start to emergeI have been a fan of this author s books since the first time I picked up her debut she has a way of luring you into a story that seems as dark as its characters and then slowly and so beautifully dragging you back to the lightAnd each time I step into the darkness I cannot help but wonder if am going emerge on the other side as the same person I was before I ead the book because with this author you know there is a guaranteed happy ending in the works but her writing is so full of life and so unpredictable I love her for the unpredictable parts as a predictable book is never any fun that I am never sure if I will at the end of the ead still feel that surge of joy and excitement when eading the back cover It s almost and yes I know this sounds completely off for a Harleuin ead but it always seems as if she is going to kill of the main characters when I least expect it and then what Thankfully it is ever the case but it is in this uniue captivating keep my attention all the way through till the end magical way of writing that the true genius of this author shines through time after timeIn this her latest ead she has done it all again and ten times better I was completely addicted to the book from the first page I could not put it down for fear am going to miss something and yes I ealize it s a book and not a tv show and thus one is able to put down and come back later yet I simply could not bring myself to do itAnd the darkness was once again there in full force and my oh my was it simply delicious I was not nuts about Nicandro having thoughts and such a drive to take evenge Tigious Virtus gentleman's club and bring it and its leader Zeus downWhat he doesn't know is that Olympia Merisi the daughter of his enemy is now in charge Olympia has her own easons fo.
